This is a straightforward, top-down (i.e., raglan sleeve - no seams!), satisfyingly quick baby cardigan with just enough flair to keep it sweet and interesting.

It’s done in three colours, ideally: a vibrant colour for the body, a paler colour for the skirt and cuffs, and an accent colour for middle band and embellishments - only as a suggestion. Choose and mix colours at will!

Instructions are given for a couple of different modifications - close with ties or buttons; embellish with leaves or leave them out.
